God Passes By

God Passes By is Shoghi Effendi’s account of the first hundred years of the Bahá’í Dispensation—from 1844 to 1944. It provides a dense summary of the victories and crises experienced by both the followers of Bahá’u’lláh and by the world at large both of whom were both significantly impacted—knowingly and unknowingly respectively—by the appearance of a Manifestation of God.

Breaking the first century of the Faith into four distinct periods - the Ministry of the Báb; the Ministry of Bahá’u’lláh; the Ministry of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá; and the rise of the Administrative Order—Shoghi Effendi describes the processes by which the Faith of Bahá’u’lláh rose from obscurity despite the determined efforts of leaders—both secular and ecclesiastical—to suppress it.

About Shoghi Effendi

Shoghi Rabbani, known as Shoghi Effendi, was born in 1897 in what is now Israel, and died in 1957 in London, England. He was the grandson of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and served as the Head of the Bahá’í Faith from 1921 to his death. Shoghi Effendi wrote over 25,000 letters and cables, some of which were later published as books. He also wrote a history of the first century of the Bahá’í Faith titled God Passes By. His writings – half of which are in English and the half of which are in Arabic and Persian - include analyses of world events in light of the Bahá’í scriptures, interpretations of Bahá’í scripture, responses to letters from individuals and Bahá’í institutions, and authoritative translations of writings of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb.
